New interim director for Phoenix VA

By Christina Myers. CREATED May 10, 2014

Changes are coming to the embattled VA health care system in Phoenix.

Steve Young will take over as an interim director on Monday, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The move comes as the Phoenix VA tries to restore its reputation, while it is under investigation for possible patient deaths.

The claims are the latest to emerge as VA hospitals around the country struggle to handle a huge influx of patients, including aging vets.

In the meantime, the Tucson VA won numerous awards for excellence in 2012.
